Lightbulb Rear door handles

Tried searching...

Just wondering whether the rear door handles from a 5dr gp would be a straight swap with my front 3dr ones,

Looking to lose the unsightly keyhole. and besides I've never actually put my key in the door in the 2 years I've had it.

Re: Rear door handles

On the Evo and newer Gps there is only a key hole in the drivers door the left hand door handle no longer has one

So i wonder if you really are serious about doing this get a UK new passenger door handle then get on the Italian Ebay or parts sites and get a continental Passenger door handle (to fit on your drivers side)

Just think about a way to get power to your battery should the need arise if you come back and you have a flat battery

Re: Rear door handles

Right, okay,

Well I've had extensions on the battery poles before on a mk2 golf, so when it needed it I could get to the battery terminals from under the car,

And with my GP only being a 1.4 8v, I could quite comfortably fit in the engine bay from underneath,

As for the parts, think i'll go down Andys route... cheers
